Marketing scientology

Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous, If a man really wanted to make a million dollars, the best way to do it would be to start his own religion.
-L. Ron Hubbard
Reader’s Digest reprint, May 1980, p.1

Scientology, a religion founded on a bar bet by L. Ron Hubbard, recently released some new commercials.

Well, if it’s “shiny cars, wistful eyes and roast beef for dinner…”, sign me up!

Or maybe this is all to counter the unauthorized commercial Tom Cruise did a while ago:

You can see all the parodies of the Tom Cruise video over at Gawker.

Now if only I could find a used copy of Dianetics…


One thought on “Marketing scientology”

  1. I bought the audiobook version of Dianetics last year and all the CDs are still in the plastic wrap. I have no idea why I bought, what I thought I was going to do with them or what I will do with them now.

    I think that opening them might release some sort of evil, but I’m scared to throw them away because the Scientology police might come after me.
